The Armory Show Announces Winners of Presents Booth, Pommery, and Étant donnés Prizes

The Armory Show announced today the winning artists and galleries for the Presents Booth Prize and the newly launched Pommery and Étant donnés Prizes. 

The third annual Presents Booth Prize went to Los Angeles’s Charlie James Gallery. The $10,000 award recognizes an outstanding and innovative gallery presentation within the Presents section of the fair and is being supported, for the third consecutive year, by Athena Art Finance. The gallery’s booth showcases the work of Sadie Barnette.

Ryan Gander’s Het Spel (My neotonic ovoid contribution to Modernism), 2019, presented by Lisson Gallery, is the winner of the inaugural Pommery Prize, a $20,000 award that will be shared between the artist and the gallery. The award recognizes an exceptional presentation within the Platform section of the fair, which is devoted to large-scale artworks, installations, and site-specific commissions. This year, the section was curated by Sally Tallant, executive director of the Queens Museum in New York.

The inaugural Étant donnés Prize, which honors a living artist of French nationality or who is based in France, was awarded to Kapwani Kiwanga, whose work was presented by Galerie Jérôme Poggi. The artist, who was the 2016 winner of the Frieze Art Award, will receive $10,000.
